The Biomedical Informatics: Data, Modeling and Analysis Graduate Certificate explores the design and implementation of novel quantitative and computational methods that solve challenging problems across the entire spectrum of biology and medicine. You will acquire knowledge and skills in bio- and clinical informatics that go beyond the undergraduate level. From recent genomic research to new applications of basic biology, you will develop an in-depth understanding of the techniques used to analyze vast amounts of biological data.
Who Should Apply
Healthcare professionals, computer scientists, biologists and bioinformaticians who want to understand how algorithms are applied to biological problems, including the different approaches and constraints necessary for practice in the modern medical field.
You Will Learn
- Decision science methodologies for the implementation of information systems
- Knowledge representations and models that support medical decision-making
- Techniques to analyze biological data from high throughput approaches
